Cherry Grove is set on over an acre and a half of wide open land made for playing and exploring. We are heavily invested in providing small home-like indoor environments that children can be nurtured, understood, and have all their learning and development needs taken care of.
At Cherry Grove we have eight rooms that cater for small groups to ensure care and development is age-appropriate and children are given the individual guidance and attention they deserve. Each room provides for a developmental stage and the ages of each room are a guide rather specific time-frames as all tamariki grow and learn at varying paces:
Seeds: Our Nursery Room for 0-12 month old's
Sprouts: Our Nursery Room for 12-18 month old's
Budlets: Our Nursery Room for 18-24 month old's
Buds: Our Toddler Room for 2-2.5 year old's
Blossom: Our Toddler Room for 2.5-3 year old's
Cherry: Our Toddler Room for 3-3.5 year old's
Busy Bees: Our Kindergarten Room for 3.5-4.5 year old's
Honey Bees: Our Kindergarten Transition to School Room for 4.5-6 year old's
Cherry Grove also has a Family Centre that provides for families wishing to learn and play alongside their child/ren. This designated building is perfect for those families that have the ability to share in the learning journey together through the early stages of a child's life.
We are very proud of our environment at Cherry Grove and the opportunities the uniqueness of our Centre provides to children and their families alike. The small numbers in all our rooms allow us to spend time understanding the needs and interests of every child and, just as importantly, the aspirations of their whanau. If you would like to know more about our philosophy and what makes Cherry Grove so unique, please do not hesitate to contact me as I'm passionate about what we have to offer!
